In an Interview with a Tribune re
porter. Miss ("Sonne left nn doubt of hot
being a rabid revolutionist.
"No nation." said she, "ever won Its
fteedom by talk. During the last twenty-five
years the parliamentary move

diminishing' of Ireland's population by
more than a million and the heavy in
crease of her taxes, without, accom
plishing: anything substantial for her
"If Ireland Is to gain her rights, anus
and not breath must be used in tlie
tight. Tho Doer war has shown that
Knglnnd Is not the invlucihlo military
power it boasted of being. Tills moans
that she will ore long be embroiled In
war with nations which have only held
back from attacking her because nf the
supposition of her being such a mighty
nation in war. Her very next arrogant,
move will be repulsed. When that
event transpires, Ireland's opportunity
will -be at hand. It was at baud even
In tho Hoer war. At one time there
wore only S.nno British soldiers in Ire
land. But we weren't ready. When it
comes again, however, w will be pro
pared. A'e are preparing now. Major
McDride and 1 are in America to

the preparations are well advanced,
and by the time the opportunity conies
they will be complete."
AN ATTRACTIVE WOMAN.
Miss CSonne is a woman of extremely
attractive personality. She Is more
than six feet tail, but erect and lithe,
and hor face, ot a pretty Irish type,
crowned' by it wealth of light hair, is
nuitle the more attractive by a. pair of
bright, Hashing eyes and a pleasant,
sympathetic smile, which almost con
tinually lights up her countenance
Like nmny of the most illustrious of
the Irish leaders, like Wolfe Tone, Fitz
gerald, Robert Kuiinet, John Mitchell
and Pnrnell, Miss limine Is a Protest
ant, und a descendant of the property
Miss Gonne is the daughter of an
Irish colonel of the British army, and
all her family connections are loyalists
und of the landlord class. One uncle
Is a general in the British army, a
cousin Is a captain, while her only sis
ter is the wife of Colonel Pilcher, who
Is serving against the Boers In South
Africa. Her conversion to nationalism
was the result of witnessing a particu
larly cruel eviction while on a vli-lt to
the house of a neighboring landlord. H
hud such an effect on her that sho re
solved to devote her life to an effort
to put an end to the system responsible
for such .savagery, and that system,
she says, she soon realized, could only
be temoved by the destruction of Brit
ish rule In Ireland.
From that time, on she became tlie
champion of the most extreme form of
hlsh nationality, and devoted particu
lar attention tn tlie unfortunate polltj.
cul prisoners who, up to a few years
ago, were in British prisons. She was
for several years the very life und soul
of tho amnesty movement In Ireland
and Kngland, making a tour of the
"three kingdoms," addressing meet

every way possible keeping public at

CHAMPION OK HOKIt CAl'SK,
Since the outhrenk of tlie war In
South Africa she has been a sturdy
champion of the Boer cntiso und has
devoted her energies to tho work of
preventing young Irishmen from join
ing the British army, From tho open
ing of tho war she hns been address
ing u series of meetings throughout
Ireland and working among the wo.
men for the purpose of making thu
British military service odious, und she
has succeeded to u remarkable degree,
It Is claimed that since she began this
movement tlie number of irishmen In
the British anny has decreased from
38,000 to 20,000. It Is for the purpose of
providing funds for this campaign that
her lecture tour was mainly under
taken. Major John McBrlde, who lectuies
with Miss Gonne, was tho organizer of
the Transvaal Irish brigade, nominally
commanded by Colonel Blake, but ac
tually commanded by Major McBrlde
during most of Iho hard fighting which
tho gallant corps saw In South Africa.
Tin; major, like nmny other famous
soldiers, Is not of coiumnmllng figure,
being not over f feet (5 Inches In height,
nnd Is of ii quiet and unassuming mnn
nor, which one would hardly expect to
find In it man of such pluck und daring.

FIRST TO CROSS.
The brigade wus among the first to
cross the border Into Nntnl. and was
in nil the hard fighting urotind Dun
dee und up to Ladysinlth, which
marked the opening of the campaign.
During the siege of Ladysinlth they
formed the guard of guns, under (Sen
eral Trlekhnrd, tho Boer chief of ar
tillery. This was it particularly ardu
ous service, requiring: men of nerve,
dauntless courage nnll sleepless vigi
lance. Tho boys nf tho brigade had
to be evr on the alert for nn I'htgllsh
sortie, and were never caught nap
ping. But. the work was too monoton
ous for tlie enterprising Irishmen, und
squads of them were constantly peti
tioning for leave to have a scrap with
tli-j British, so it became the custom
to allow n hundred or more ot them
to go down the Ttigela, when tight In;,'
was going on, and In this way Major
MoHride and n strong party or his
men were at the famous battle of Col
enso, where Bailer's nrmy of over "O.00O
men wre routed by u force nf less than
.1,0011 Boers, ensconced behind the
kopjes on the northern bank of the
The men of the Irish brigade won
immortal faine that day by a dash on
horseback over n portion or the river
bank exposed, to the tire or the British
artillery, to seize a kopje which en
abled them to rake tho retreating and
demoralized Knglish In tho flank with
a murderous rifle fire. It was from
hero that the British artillery horses
wore shot down, and McBrlde was
among tho first to cross tho river on
horseback, and had the satisfaction ot
personally making -a prisoner of Col
onel Bullock, the commander of the
Knglish artillery. Kleven guns, one of
them being disabled, were captured by
HAD A PROMINENT PART.
In all the light lug which followed the
Irish bore it prominent pnrt, and after
tlie surrender of Crouje at Paardberg
the brigade was sent by Its own wish
down into the Free Slate to help stem
the udviuicing tide of invasion. From
Kroonstad to Johannesburg and Pre
toria, and thence with Hotlia in all the
tierce battles which followed the fall of
the Boer capital they .took a prominent
part. They were always the rear guard
and the last to exchange shots with Iho
English. They destroyed Hie railroads
and bridges as they retreated with
thi'lr face to the foe, and II was to
their stubborn valor that Botha owed
his ability to escape northward to re
organize his shattered forces and re
commence the war on the now guer
The new slate of tilings made men
without horses useless to the liners,
and all but lifteen of the horses of the
Irish brigade had been either shot,
worn out, starved to deatli or killed
by exhaustion, and thoy were finally
cnrraled up against Hie Portuguese
frontier near Koomallport with a few
hundred others, with sn.iion British un
der French in their front and on their
flanks .mil S.0I10 Portuguese in their
rear across the border. Here they
made it bold bluff, which deceived
French as to their numbers, and they
held the British force for three days.
and Huts gave Botha a chance to re
treat north with the remnant of his
army. Then they burned their stores
and crossed into the Delngoa bay ter
ritory and thence to France.
This was how the Irish brigade in tho
Transvaal nrmy ceased to exist, the
major says, und this Is why he Is In
this country. The object of his lectures
is to tench Irishmen the true lesson
of tho Boer war and to warn them to
prepare for a Until day of reckoning
with England, which he claims is com
ing in the' near future through a great
European war which will smash tho
The forty men who went from this
country to join ills brigade were val
iant fighters. Major Mi-Bride says.
Ho could have secured thousands ot
recruits from, among the Irishmen

victories over the British, but Kruger
would not permit of It, not because he
doubted them, but because he feared
it would tend tn offend tho English
